Sonos, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONO) today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a common stock repurchase program of up to $50 million.
Sonos completed its previous $50 million share repurchase program during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 pursuant to which it purchased 3.8 million shares.
Patrick Spence, Sonos CEO, commented, “This new authorization underscores the fact we’ve hit an inflection point in our business and demonstrates our commitment to delivering long-term shareholder value. We are confident in the earnings power of our model and our belief in the significant value creation opportunities that lie ahead.”
Under the repurchase program, Sonos may purchase shares of common stock on a discretionary basis from time to time through open market repurchases, privately negotiated transactions or other means, including through Rule 10b5-1 trading plans or through the use of other techniques such as accelerated share repurchases. The timing and number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including stock price, trading volume, and general business and market conditions. The repurchase program has no time limit, does not obligate Sonos to acquire a specified number of shares and may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time at the company’s discretion.
Repurchases under this program will be funded from the company’s existing cash and cash equivalents or future cash flow.
